The first lithium-ion battery packs to be granted UL certification for use in forklift applications have been announced.

US company Flux Power Holdings Light EV battery packs for Class III pallet jack forklifts, or “walkies”, are now listed to UL 2271 certification.

Packs reaching the UL certification are deemed to meet standard requirements, including withstanding simulated abuse conditions, construction requirements, as well as electrical, mechanical and environmental testing.

Ibrahim Jilani, business development manager for UL’s energy and power technologies division, said: “We are pleased to see this trend towards addressing safety considerations for the light EV battery market.

“UL’s trusted independent third party evaluation gives manufacturers like Flux Power a way to demonstrate compliance of their lithium-ion battery packs to stringent safety standards. 

“Being UL Listed is an assurance that these battery pack models have been evaluated for safety in light EV applications.”

Flux Power’s CEO Ron Dutt said securing the UL Listing was a significant milestone for the company as it underscored the quality, safety and reliability of their LiFT Pack line.

UL 2271 certification is offered by UL for battery products (cell, module, and pack) for use in a variety of light motive or transportation related applications.

Flux’s Vista assembly facility has also passed its Initial Production Inspection (“IPI”) by UL to allow LiFT Packs with UL Listing to be shipped.
